Why Casa de Arroyo, Gus MacDonald and Lotta Hallman chose La Subbetica

In July 2013 we bought Casa de Arroyo (or The house by the stream, in English) as we fell in love with this incredibly beautiful and unspoilt area. Far from the crowds by the coast we found our peaceful haven. We have put our hearts and soul in to the properties and have restored and added our personal touch. We have gone to every length to ensure that your holiday will be pleasant and unforgettable. An evidence of this is the fact that already we have had numerous returnee guests who appreciate the ambient, relaxing atmosphere here.

We have made arrangements with dozens of local and regional entrepreneurs and can organise a vast array of events - from Kayaking on the lake to motorcyle tours in the spectacular countryside of this area. If hiking or mountain cycling is your thing, we can have a fully qualified local masseuse waiting for you on your return from that long day out! Or, just relax by the pool.

Our properties is a fanastic base for your explorations and adventures in Andalucia!

Clean, comfortable, and relaxing. A gem!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely property in a beautiful area of Spain just over an hour from Granada. Gus and Lotta are excellent hosts. Everything incredibly clean and comfortable with a great log burner to keep us warm in the evenings. Sunny days with temperatures in the 20's and lots of comfortable outside seating. We had a fabulous relaxing holiday.

Peaceful, rural setting with exceptional hosts

  • 5 of 5

Gus and Lotta are two very welcoming hosts and the proud owners of a wonderful holiday villa. Iznájar is a beautiful unspoilt part of Spain with easy access to various cultural centres. The lake is a fantastic alternative to the sea and a perfect playground for children. The villa is well appointed and spotlessly clean; it has a good sized pool and games room with plenty of games. The villa and the area exceeded our expectations. Thank you Gus & Lotta!!!
